Degrees and Requirements

Chemistry

To complete a minor in chemistry, a minimum of 23 chemistry credits must be taken. In addition to required courses, students must choose at least 3 additional credits from any chemistry course 2000 level or above. The student can expect to take three academic years to complete the minor because many upper level chemistry courses are offered on a two-year cycle.
